site updates: scheduled offline mode 9-11 November, and account registrations
Dear friends of Founders and Survivors,
It has been encouraging to see all the interest and support that the project has received. To accommodate the increasing numbers of inquiries and convict submissions that we are now receiving, we need to upgrade the software that runs this site. We would also like all of our volunteers and everyone submitting convicts to register an account on this site to enable easier communication.
This website will be put into read-only mode from Monday 9 to Wednesday 11 November, 2009. This means that you will be able to view the content of the site but will not be able to add or update submissions or register or update your user account. During this time we will move the system to a more powerful server, and also update the software to improve the way we handle submissions. For example, after the upgrade you will be able to search for your own submissions using the search box in the top right-hand corner -- this is not possible under the current system. Please be patient during this time.
We are also urging everyone who wants to submit convicts or volunteer on the project to register a user account if you have not already done so. You can create an account by completing this form. If you are submitting convicts, registering an account will enable you to keep track of your own convict submissions. Those who are interested in volunteering can complete the volunteer questionnaire to help us get an overview of our volunteers' interests and expertise.
If you have any questions about our upgrade or the registration process, please do not hesitate to contact us.
